Today the students used the strategy “Keep It or Junk It” to help us get ready for a Structured Academic Controversy (SAC) we’ll be doing on this week. The Keep It or Junk It strategy has students working in small groups to identify key vocabulary from a text. This is followed by students working as a class to negotiate what the key vocabulary is and why. Words that are important are kept while words that are not are junked.
This list of words will be used for our writing and our SAC.
